ting shots, turning nearly every possession into

Winning begets winning in professional sports, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — fresh off snapping their seven-game losing skid with a Banjo Bowl victory — are hoping to build off their second win of the season as they begin a home-and-home series with the CFLs cellar-dwelling 1-9 Edmonton Eskimos. Jean-Christophe Bahebeck Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . "Ive been on teams that have been on losing streaks and broke out of it. All it takes is that first one, and if you just focus on one game at a time then you can climb out of things like this," said Winnipeg defensive end Greg Peach. "And I think after that first Saskatchewan game we kind of figured out that if we put a full game together we can put them away and put any team away. Now we have that confidence that we can do it to any team." "I was only here for a couple days before that first game (in Saskatchewan)," added Peach, who joined the Bombers just three days before the Labour Day Classic in Regina. "But I just know from experience of teams that have been on big losing streaks that I know what they were going through the last seven games. And I understand what the mentality is and what players are thinking. I think now we got this first win, I think theres a confidence thats building and guys are believing and putting things together." Peach, a five-year CFL veteran, knows that in the Canadian game you cant count a team out of the playoffs regardless of their record until late in the season — especially in this years East Division. And his coach knows it too. "Were a unique league in that respect because six of the eight teams are going to the playoffs. In the NFL or NCAA or whatever, if you had a below .500 record you wouldnt even sniff at the playoffs," said head coach Tim Burke. "Theyre aware. I mean most of them are aware. I cant believe some of them werent." With the youngest roster in the league this is the case. Several Blue Bombers didnt know until this week that they are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. And with Eastern opponents Hamilton, Toronto, and Montreal facing tough road games over the next two weeks, Winnipeg has a chance to capitalize on back-to-back games against the single-win Eskimos. "It was just brought to my attention that we were back into the playoff race," said second-year defensive back Demond Washington, fresh off his Defensive Player of the Week nod. "Weve just got to bear down and play hard this week. Every week from here on out just take it one week at a time and well get it done." "Once you get that win up under your belt, you gain a little confidence and you want to go out, you want to play more, you want to win more. So I think that win is contagious. All the guys are going to come out and were going to play hard." It may be cliché, but it appears Winnipegs bench boss is having his team focus on the weekly task at hand. "I prefer to focus on one game; one game at a time," added Burke. "I mean, I have in the past said hey, heres a reason why we should be working our butts off, were only four points out, and then after last week we were only six points out. But now were back to four points out. My approach has always been to take it one game at a time and focus on that. Use the game itself as your motivation. Dont use playoffs because thats something you cant grasp." "But you know, its interesting. As the season goes along, were still in it. So we have a lot to fight for, thats for sure." Notes: The Winnipeg Football Club is now officially in the post-Buck Pierce era, as acting GM Kyle Walters moved the veteran pivot to the B.C. Lions for Canadian receiver Akeem Foster.

The Wildcats will have to play a little better if they want to keep going in the bracket. Nick Johnson scored 18 points, Aaron Gordon added 16 and top-seeded Arizona overcame a shaky start and a late run by Weber State to beat the Wildcats 68-59 in the West Regional on Friday. The first full day of the tournament was a wild one filled with upsets, and the bracket-busting trend continued early Friday, when Mercer, a No. 14 seed, knocked off mighty Duke. Arizona (31-4) appeared to be next in line, falling into an 8-point hole in the opening 6 minutes. Arizona closed in around Weber State (19-12), shutting down the Wildcats during two big first-half runs, seemingly putting the fairytale to bed. Comfortably ahead, Arizona let off the gas late, allowing Weber State to trim a 21-point lead down to nine before pulling it out. Solid, but not great, particularly since the next game -- against Gonzaga or Oklahoma State on Sunday -- is the spot the Wildcats have been picked to go down. Weber State put up a fight in its first NCAA tournament appearance since 2007, clearly not intimidated by Arizona and its cast of future NBA players. The Wildcats just didnt have the manpower to keep up with the long, athletic Cats during their big runs and nor did they have enough left climb all the way back after clawing back in the second half. Davion Berry scored 24 points and Richaud Gittens added 12 for Weber State. Arizona had been in this spot before, faciing a quick-trigger 3-point shooting team in the opening round. Zlatan Ibrahimovic Jersey. A year ago, Belmont was a popular bracket buster pick against the Wildcats because of its ability to shoot the 3, but Arizona turned the slight into motivation and ran over the Bruins. Even after an opening day of upsets in the bracket, there were no calls for an upset against Arizona this year. But just as Mercer was busy taking down Duke, Weber State gave the 16-over-a-1-seed miracle a glimpse of life, holding Arizona without a field for nearly 5 minutes during a game-opening 10-2 run. The dream popped with a flurry of blocked shots, steals and runouts the other direction. After falling into the early hole, one of the nations best defences flexed its muscles against the Big Sky-champion Wildcats, jumping into passing lanes, swatting shots, turning nearly every possession into a fight against the shot clock. Weber State missed 12 of 13 shots as Arizona went on two big runs and shot 6 of 24 in the first half with nine turnovers that Arizona turned into 12 points. The desert Wildcats shook off their early offensive funk with an array of dunks and 3-pointers, racing past Weber State with runs of 14-2 and 13-3 to go up 32-20 at halftime. Arizona looked as if it was going to run away with it early in the second half, only to watch Weber State scratch a huge lead to under double digits with 4 1-2 minutes left. Arizona turned back every attempt Weber State made after that to pull out the victory, but will likely face more upset predictions in the next round after this one. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
